Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Muffins

Here is a moist not overly sweet muffin that is almost “healthy”. It has a great chocolate flavor, and the peanut butter chips just add but don’t over power it. They make a great on the go muffin or bedtime snack for the kids. I tried this recipe out on my sons, and my chocolate-peanut butter loving child loved them! He didn’t even find the oatmeal that is mixed into the recipe. The oatmeal just adds a little bit of texture but not crunch to this great recipe.
